Dewar's whisky has secured the services of James Bond to feature in an advertising campaign, the Financial Times reported today. Sir Sean Connery, the former 007 star, has agreed to advertise the 12-year-old blended Scotch whisky, owned by Bacardi.

The advertising campaign will feature footage of a younger Sir Sean spliced with current footage of the actor, with the slogan "some age, others mature."

Details of remuneration were not released.
